$44 for the starry? Yikes, was only 15 at my LFS. I suppose it's harder to ship them to Canada than California though, lol. And the whole US->CA conversion rate.

Loving the Coris btw.

Thanks

And yes my LFS is often more expensive I've noticed, it's probably because he opened it himself, he is the only LFS that specializes in SW in the whole city. Our petland, Petsmart, and Petcetera here only sell FW. I kind of like it though, my LFS only orders the best and he can get me pretty much anything I want, even rare items. I don't mind spending extra to keep him open, it's nice having a LFS owner that knows what he's doing.

You pay more for for reef livestock in Canada than we do in US,while we pay more for our medicine in the US than you do in Canada for the same medicine. Can't win right? LOL

Nice aquisitions. Dont expect the cleaner wrasse to live long. I`ve never seen one live longer than three months. They have a poor record of making it in home aquariums.

And yes I was aware of this Do you think the fact that it's pigging out on frozen foods will help it's survival??

Mine would always eat good also but they never made it longer than three months. I have several fish from 8 - 13 yrs old so I know it was not the water conditions. Need to move this to the New aquisitions forum.

Dang, that's kind of what I thought though. We had one years ago that was eating and it too didn't last long.
